    Hi Erisian. Just found your blog and love it – and the pix of the cute kids!
    About these books you recommend I need some help with my Mom, she lives alone (3 times divorced) and she calls me every day. If I don’t talk to her she says she’ll kill herself and she already tried that more than once. It’s getting to my partner and my little girl, and my therapist says I should cut lose but its hard. Would one of these books help me? Or which one would be best?
    Yours, Karen

      Hi Karen, Thanks for taking the time to comment and I’m sorry to hear of your tribulations. I would recommend both In Sheep’s Clothing and Enough About You, Let’s Talk About Me – the first is a very slim book and an enormously helpful eye-opener, while the second goes into more depth and provides more managing tactics and strategies. I ought to add that I am currently reading Lynne Forrest’s Beyond Victim Consciousness and am finding it incredibly useful too, both from the perspective of understanding myself and my own behaviours better, but also others and theirs. Whatever else you come away with – and you wouldn’t be asking if you didn’t already know – your situation as it stands does not sound to me like one that you can sustain without its taking its toll on you.
      I wish you the very best in your journey and I do hope this goes some way to helping.
      Warmly, Alice
